"Sometimes one sees in the school simply the instrument for transferring a certain
maximum quantity of knowledge to the growing generation. But that is not right.
Knowledge is dead. The school, however, serves the living. It should develop in the
young individuals those qualities and capabilities which are of value for the welfare of the
commonwealth. But that does not mean that individuality should be destroyed and the
individual become a mere tool of the community, like a bee or an ant. For a community of
standardized individuals without personal originality and personal aims would be a poor
community without possibilities for development. On the contrary, the aim must be the
training of independently acting and thinking individuals, who however, see in the
service of the community their highest life problem."

A college education is not a quantitative body of memorized knowledge
salted away in a card file. It is a taste for knowledge, a taste for philosophy,
if you wilt a capacity to explore, to question to perceive relationships,
between fields of knowledge and experience. - A. Whitney Griswold
To think is easy. To act is hard. But the hardest thing in the world is to act id
accordance with your thinking. [
It is one of the most beautiful compensations of this life that no man can
sincerely try to help another without helping himself.
Ralph Waldo Emerson
You are educated. Your certification is in jour degree. You may think of it as the
ticket to the good life. Let me ask you to think of an alternative. Think of it as your
ticket to change the world. Tom Brokaw

The bond that links your true family is not
one of blood, but of respect and joy in each
other's life. -Richard "Bach

"SUCCESS: To have laughed and loved much to have won the respect
of intelligent people and the affection of little children. To look an old
dog in the eye and know that he likes you just because you like him.
To have looked for the best in people, instead of the worst. To have
withstood the betrayal of false friends and won the appreciation of
honest critics. To leave the world a little better, whether it Is through a
garden patch, a healthy child, a better business, a better association or
a redeemed social condition. To know that even one life has breathed
a little easier because you have lived. THAT IS TO HAVE SUCCESS."
Congratulations and best wishes on this special day! You have and will continue to
make us proud.
"What is success? It is: Setting goals, but not in concrete. Staying focussed, but
turning aside to help someone. Following a plan, but remaining flexible. Moving
ahead, but not too fast to smell the flowers. Taking a bow, but applauding those
who had a part in your success."
Simply put, you're a success!
